Mission Possibilities

The Portage la Prairie Community Revitalization Corporation and the
Portage Chamber of Commerce partnered together to launch “Mission Possibilities.”
On September 10, 2014, 9 members of our community received a top secret package,
including a video and $100. They were challenged to take the $100 dollars
and make a positive change in our community, but with a deadline of only 30 days!

Here are what our Agents of Change accomplished.

Alana Bolton: Set up a compliment booth in Portage Collegiate Institute.

85 students exchanged compliments, received a flower and a photograph memento.
$100 encouraged kindness, built self- confidence and 85 students felt great about their day.

Alana has been invited to set up a compliment booth at another school.

Guy Moffat: Using community connections more than doubled his original $100. He was able to donate $225 to two committees, Parks and Active Transportation.

Lindsey Jordan: Used $100 to host a community clean-up and food drive for the Salvation Army.

Not only did $100 improve the appearance of the neighbourhood, it also brought in105 lbs. of food for the food bank.

Jeff Dubois:  Used his initial $100 to launch a “trade-up” campaign. After he was finished trading, Jeff managed to turn his $100 into $500 of grocery certificates. He used those help three schools and two organizations; resulting in 400 nutritious school snacks, 30 meals for seniors and food for 15-20 families that use the food bank.

Kirsten Trimble: Organized a Halloween costume drive for children, called Costumes for a Cause. Kirsten and her friends collected 88 costumes, plus accessories that were distributed to children in Portage. They are planning to do it again next year. Kirsten wants Portage to be a community that all children have fond memories of.

Nathan Weselake:  Created the Shalom Award. Two students, one from Portage Collegiate and one from Westpark will receive $1000 each for embodying the spirit of the word Shalom; “The way things ought to be.” Nathan used $100 as a catalyst for conversations with local businesses so that the Shalom Award will continue on.

Stacy Turner: Used her $100 to buy baking supplies for her cubs. The cubs baked cookies which they sold to their families to raise more money for their projects. The cubs were able to build two benches that they donated, paint playground equipment, purchase food for the Salvation Army food bank while learning how to give back to their community.

Tyler Dunn: Created a Facebook page challenging people in Portage to give their best My Portage message and used the $100 as a prize. Tyler used social media to promote and encourage positive attitudes for our city.

Ember Rodgers: Used the $100 to establish the first ever “Proud to be a Portager Colour Run”.

By colouring cornstarch and organizing this event, Ember with her partners not only raised $1040 which she donated to Big Brothers Big Sisters, but highlighted why Portage is a great place to live.


With their creative thinking and hard work, these 9 individuals surpassed all expectations.


Mission Accomplished






























The Portage Chamber of Commerce encourages all Portage residents
